My Newgrounds tank pin came in the mail!

Lots of great memories and people connected to this lil' tank.

Just wanted to show it off here, in case you're still undecided.

As of Friday April 22nd, 2016, I'm finally a fully certified high school teacher and University of Alberta alumna! Woo!!

I made it guys! I'm finally done!!11!!

Now, in two weeks time, I'll be kickin' it at the Newgrounds office with the cool kids and PARTYING FOR PICO DAY!! HUZZAH! 


Back from Philly and Back to School!

Hey everybody! 

I'm finishing up my final year of university now, so my updates and art posts might be sparse for the next little while. Found out I won't be able to make it to MAGfest 2016 because of that, too. It falls in February this year which is a really busy time for me because I'll be teaching for my practicum. 

That said, I'll be finished school by mid April 2016, so Pico Day is gonna be the perfect excuse to party hard and celebrate being an alumna! Maybe I'll finally be able to try out the full-time artist thing while I look for work as a teacher, too.

Seeing everybody in Philly was really nice - always is. This time I went out there for the express purpose of relaxing, so I got to do that in the company of good friends. Made sure to see Stamper, TomFulp, and RicePirate before they left for PAXPrime, got to sit in on the recording of Sleepycabin's update video, recorded a podcast with @Digsbot and @JohnnyUtah, and get a bunch of commission work done. Even got to see @SandraDRivas as she released her new Eddsworld toon, and @Nackem while she visited from outside of PA! c: Thanks for being so welcoming guys. Philly's always felt like a home away from home.

Good luck with the last little bit of 2015!

Hope everybody's hangin' in there! <3

- Sab

Every time I travel anywhere to visit with my art pals, I make a point of bringing a comically huge sketchbook with me so I can keep memoirs of my visit in bound sketchbook form! It makes for a great 100% unique souvenir, and I love looking back on the drawings I've been given because a lot of the people have since become prominent artists and animators! 

Last week I FINALLY found a scanner big enough to scan all of the artwork I had amassed over the years and posted all 72 images on IMGUR.

Have a look! Maybe you'll see some familiar artists and characters!

Made T-Shirts and New Art!

2015-07-13 17:44:52 by Sabtastic

Woo! My Society6 shirts just arrived in the mail! 

(I shamelessly ordered my own art on t-shirts because I was curious about the quality - turns out it's really comfy and clearly printed!) 

The first one is based on one of my Demon Girl prints, the middle one is my Fierce Deity Link print, and the other is a Sugar Skull Zombie pinup! All artwork that I've posted here on Newgrounds!

[Sab's Society6 Store] <-- US based print company

PS: I've decided that I'm not going to sell my Cintiq Companion (referring to my previous journal post). I found out that WACOM actually sells gently used and repaired models for MUCH cheaper than my brand new one, so I would feel bad selling someone mine for full price when they could save almost a thousand bucks buying it used: [refurbished wacom products]


Selling my Cintiq Companion!

2015-06-30 19:07:06 by Sabtastic

Hey guys! 

If you know any Canadian artists out there, maybe you can help me out by sharing this with them! I'm selling my tablet because I want to upgrade to the Cintiq Companion 2! Bought it for $2,729.99 and I'm selling it for $2,600.00. It's pretty pricey, but WACOM doesn't ship to Canada, so these are pretty hard to get if you don't have a US hookup or if you don't live close to a Canadian distributor.

The reason that this is sold at original price is because I sent my original tablet back to the provider for repairs and they sent me a brand new one. Rather than open it up and install everything all over again, I'm going to try and sell my new one so I can upgrade later.

It's brand new, unopened in-box, and it has a 2 year warantee until June 2017.

Also this is the 512GB model that runs on Windows 8.
